Number of New Employments Reported by Clients Receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)

This measures the number of different employments reported for the year (summed by quarter).  The number of employments is decreasing as the number of TANF cases decreases.  This outcome helps to measure the effectiveness of employment services in helping clients find and maintain employment, therefore, increasing their independence while decreasing their reliance on assistance.

Graphs shows the Number of New Employments Reported by Clients Receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) for FY13 through FY17 and FY18 by Quarter

In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years.  Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized.  This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes.  Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter.  This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
